The mystery of how The Great Pyramids were built 4,600 years ago in Giza, have been questioned for centuries and is a common unknown phenomenon. However, a recent discovery has expanded our knowledge on how they were possibly built and the life of the workers themselves in the article: Standing Tall: Egypt’s Great Pyramids written by Jose Miguel Parra. The Greek philosopher Herodotus has expressed his theories on King Khufu’s pyramid who in which was the second king of the fourth dynasty of Ancient Egypt. This National Geographic article has also new discoveries on how the workers were not slaves as we once thought but paid workers with roles, along with how the process of building each pyramid differed and was created by an “Inner step structure” (Parra par. 15).
Over 4,000 years later the Egyptian pyramids remain in a magnificent state and still hold much of their glory. The kings had great power over Egypt because the Egyptians considered them in between a human and a god. The kings were believed to have been chosen by the gods themselves to serve as almost a messenger between the Egyptians and the gods. Because the kings were so highly respected and powerful they would plan magnificent burials so

Three important values, customs, and/ or elements of day-to-day lifestyle in ancient Greek culture are religion, storytelling, and loyalty. Religion played a major role in the day-to-day routine of ancient Greek culture. For example, the books says, “Come, we’ll cut out the noblest of these cattle/ for sacrifice to the gods who own the sky;/ and once at home, in the old country of Ithaca,/ if ever that day comes-/ we’ll build a costly temple and adorn it/ with every beauty for the Lord of the Noon.” (ll.
Though Carter was focused on getting inside the rest of the tomb, he noted that the doorway had been sealed three different times. These findings lead Carter to the conclusion that the tomb had been robbed in the past. Carter and other archeologists even noted that king Tut’s tomb was not decorated and did not have many of the grand features of a normal pharaoh’s tomb. Though the tomb was quickly constructed, Carter’s discoveries proved that King Tut’s tomb was the greatest ancient Egyptian tomb ever discovered (“KV62” 1). Carter still had plenty of work to do though, to prove that this was the greatest tomb ever
But, our trip to Poland and Greece has given me an idea as to why this memory has stuck with me for over a decade. The Holocaust affected everyone. Not one single life went through the atrocities untouched. Today, the effects are still being felt. As one of my classmates once

“After trampling over many bodies and corpses, we succeeded in getting inside.” (Wiesel 89). That was just a small amount of dead bodies during a march. There were thousands of prisoner marches going on during the Holocaust. There were a thousand times as many bodies as seen
Green Acres seems to pride itself on being a sort-of “one-stop” funeral choice, with having a mortuary, chapel, and cemetery all within their land. Green Acres Cemetery really surprised me with all of the different types of memorials they had there. While most of the grave markers were traditional-looking headstones, there were also several giant and elaborate memorials. There was one memorial in particular towards the back of the cemetery that had a concrete divider around the whole plot and it contained a whole family. There was a very large memorial in a tombstone shape at the head of the plot that had a picture of the husband, wife, and daughter-who was holding her puppy, and one single date of death for all three of them engraved into it.
